<opt> <anon I1="BLANK" I2="BLANK">"Leave?" Clay echoed, startled. "How? On our own?""Why not?" Tsunami said. "If we can find a way out-why should we have to wait another two years? I'm ready to save the world now, aren't you?""We can't stop the war by ourselves," he said. "We wouldn't know where to start."Still, part of him couldn't help imagining what it would be like to go home now. Back to the marshes, to the swamps, to a whole tribe of MudWings who looked like him and thought like him...back to his parents, whoever they were...What if they could do it? What if they could escape, and survive, and save the world...their own way? Excerpted from The Dragonet Prophecy by Tui T. Sutherland All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.

Horn Book Review

Color by Maarta Laiho. Five young dragons are destined to fulfill a prophecy to end the war among dragon tribes. In the graphic novel adaptation of the first title in Sutherland's popular fantasy series, the illustrations translate rather than enhance the original story. Still, they have some clever moments, and a dynamic panel layout should keep pages turning. (c) Copyright 2019. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
